Q&A With This Artist
A: I use an assortment of Healing stones and Handcrafted beads. Prior to COVID, I would travel, attend bead shows and connect with entities with access to bead makers. My process from start to finish includes feeling the beads, and first becoming familiar with their healing properties or the process in which they were created- there’s so much beauty in understanding the materials first... which helps in the design process.
A: Crafting with intention is so important to me- these are more than just beads.. they’re pieces of culture, history and healing.
A: Life’s experiences continue to inspire me to create- I see inspiration Everywhere.. in my family, in my community and in pop culture. There are so many vibrant personalities and perspectives.... I channel my experiences through my Art.
